TOWN are finishing 2005 with sights fixed on two big events in the coming year.
One of them is almost immediate - the FA Cup third round trip to Premier League champions Chelsea next Saturday.
The other will start in the summer when the fans' favourite son, Andy Booth, launches the testimonial which was granted when he signed his new contract with the club.
The 32-year-old - who made his senior debut way back in March 1992 - is also hoping to pass his next goalscoring landmark next year.
With 119 Town goals already under his belt, Booth needs just 10 more to top the total of legendary wingman Billy Smith, who played a total of 572 matches between 1913 and 1934.
Booth's form has helped Town to an impressive playing record in 2005, including a record run of scoring in 31 consecutive first-team matches.
Before the final fixture at Barnsley, Town had won 25 of their 51 matches in League and Cup.
Twelve of those matches have been drawn, meaning only 14 defeats in the 12 months.
During that same span, Jackson has been able to maintain his superb record of promoting from the club's own successful Academy.
The likes of Adnan Ahmed, Michael Collins, Tom Clarke - who has played for England at Under 18 and U19 level - and John McCombe won't forget 2005 in a hurry as they've made significant strides up the professional ladder.
Long may it continue.
